a Merry Christmas and all my best wishes for the year of 2007

safe riding and stay healthy,

Ho Ho Ho!

To our Hosts, Moderators, and Contributers alike, Merry Christmas, and may the coming year bring safe travels to all. And from one fellow Honda rider to another, that's a mighty fine looking Honda Klaus.

Now eat drink and be Mary!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
